Rubicon Express Monotube
Price: $61.25
Pros: Amazing ride. Gas charged = No shock fade.
Cons: More expensive than hydro/twin tubes.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just switched from RK hydros to these. So much better ride. Large bumps in the road feel much better. Excellent dampening.

There is no comparison between a gas filled shock vs. a softer hydro. Much more responsive. I'm finally getting a great ride with my LA suspension.

I got these for $245 shipped with the bar pins/shock boots already installed.

Rubicon Express Monotube
Pros: Superior dampening and response, quality, price
Cons: price
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I listed price in both categories because while they are a great value, they are still much more expensive than a twin tube (although there is no comparison in performance)

Rubicon Express Monotube
Price: $45.00
Pros: Smooth ride, price, manufacturer quality
Cons: None for me
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got these with my REBB kit as well. After reading how awesome the OME shocks were, I was unsure if I'd like these at all. But after putting them in and going for a ride, I liked the ride. To me it felt better on the freeway than stock shocks and offroad they do just fine. I would say if price and ride are a factor to definitely have a serious look at these shocks.

Rubicon Express Monotube
Pros: EVERYTHING IS GOOD
Cons: NONE
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got these with my REBB...they ride very well on-road. They are as good, if not a little bit softer that the stock shocks. Very sturdy construction, easy installation. Good off-road, plenty of extension. What more is there to say? Really nice shocks!!

Rubicon Express Monotube
Price: $85.00
Pros: Affordable, smooth, quality manufacturer
Cons: not adjustable, no additional reservoir
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I was sceptical about these shocks at first. My gut feeling as to go with the Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks. After reading more about it, the Ranchos are too stiff for a Jeep, offering a fairly bumpy ride.

The RE Monotubs are amazing. I have no complaints about the performance. Its always a pleasure to hop in the jeep and cruise either down the street or over several boulders.

I'll be running these shocks for the duration of my jeep ownership. They came highly recommended from both 4x4 shops I frequent. Hands down best performance for the dollar!

My good friend runs the Rancho 5000's and because of the light weight of our vehicals, it gives him a VERY stiff ride.

RE Monotubes. Highly Recommended.
